One Advantage of Seeing a baseball game on home TV

A controversial play is never shown on the video screen at a baseball game since the umpires
contract with Major League Baseball forbids it. There is a new rule that a disputed home run may be reviewed on video tape. Last night Gary Sheffield hit a home run down the left field line. Since our seats were past third base our view was obstructed. There were likely several showings of that home run on television which we could not see at the ball park. After a 6 minute delay the umpires ruled it a home run. It hit above the orange stripe. There was a similiar situation in Boston on Friday night which also was ruled in favor of the Mets.

Last night they won 5-2, but the game was somewhat boring due to a total of 16 walks.
